First time on Princess

This was our first time with Princess. We loved how on embarking, you were not forced to eat in the buffet. Past cruises have guided all guests to this area. So, that was a good start. Because most of the activities were scattered in other areas of the ship, the atrium was a relaxing place to sit and listen to the music, while enjoying a tea or coffee. Didn't like having to pay for a pot of ...

Always wanted to cross the Atlantic, and very happy we did. Many complained that Princess failed them when they dropped a couple of ports and substituted a couple of others, but we didn't mind - it's all about the ship for us and CB was looking sharp coming out of her major dry dock. We sailed her only a year ago, so the changes were obvious for us. Most Notable: Horizon Court is no ...

The cruise itinerary was fine. We planned our own excursions. Caribbean Princess is a little tired, but we know that when we booked. The beds and bedding were new and great. The bathroom tiles are old but all edges and corners in shower have been resealed so there is no mold. All staff members, especially our room steward, were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was terrible. ...

This was my 2nd Transaltlantic with Princess and my 6th overall with them. We really enjoyed ourselves. Check in was easy and although I am Platinium, I was not given priority boarding until I showed my number to a Rep. and she then let us aboard, not a biggy, but for sure can set a tone. Our inside cabin on Riviera Deck was fine, every thing we really needed, It was our first inside for such ...

Many people cancelled this cruise when it was announced that the ship had a propulsion problem and would be traveling slower. They also changed the itinerary to accommodate this reduced speed. But I have to say that you really missed out on a wonderful cruise. We never had any mechanical problems and the ports were good, and the staff, food , entertainment, etc. were outstanding. We traveled ...

We sailed the Caribbean Princess from Southampton 9/22/17 to Ft Lauderdale 10/7/17. It was our 45th cruise, but first transatlantic. We used Princess’ EZ Air for Virgin Atlantic BOS to LHR and enjoyed a day in London pre-cruise. Overall we had a very good, relaxing time. We love sea days; the first two were very cool, but the other eight were fantastic. We relaxed on a Lido Deck chaise ...

We got an unbelievable offer to take this cruise, and truly could not pass it up! This was my 15th cruise with Princess and my husband's 13th. I have to say, Princess' EZAir is amazing! We got a phenominal price for the airfare and had a good flight over to England. We opted to take Princess' transfer from Heathrow to Southampton and was very pleased with it as well. We boarded the ship and ...

Tired old ship with tired old onboard activities & substandard shore excursions

Pricing: Princess originally offered this 5-port transatlantic voyage at $2k each for midship balcony cabins. Upon eliminating 2 ports and substituting 1 port, the balcony price reduced to $1,500. We were told the skipped ports were because the ship was operating on only one engine instead of two, and could achieve only 18 knots instead of the normal 20-something.Onboard we learned that some ...

Had second thoughts, wish I would’ve made a different decision

We chose this cruise for itinerary. Unfortunately the second half ports were changed before final payment. We thought long and hard about canceling. Sorry now we didn’t. We flew to Heathrow on Princess EZ air. Flights went well. We landed at 6:15 am and it took almost two hours to get off the plane and through passport control. A nightmare. We found our princess transfer easily and were ...

Nice Trans-Atlantic Crossing

Chose this cruise because of the sea days. Ports of Le Havre, Bruge, and Lisbon were very interesting with perfect sunny weather. Did not take any of the overpriced Princess shore excursions. Caribbean Princess is beginning to show its age, but is still a nice ship. Dining room service at dinner was very good, but open-seating breakfasts and lunch had only so-so service. Fish dishes were very ...
